Letter from NYeC Executive Director, Valerie Grey
Welcome to the fourth issue of the SHIN-NY Spotlight, a quarterly update on the progress the state is making in developing New York’s health information exchange (HIE), the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY).
As you’ll recall from our January issue, NYeC has been working closely with our stakeholders and the State to develop a multi-year roadmap to set the course for the continued evolution of the SHIN-NY. Focused on increasing adoption, data contribution and quality, and usage of the SHIN-NY, the roadmap will move us towards our goal of a transformed healthcare system where health information exchange is universally used as a tool to make lives better. As a part of the roadmap’s development, we continue to work with stakeholders to refine the SHIN-NY, listening to them to better understand their needs to drive our development of long-term objectives, features, and operational plans. You can review a summary of version 1.0 here.
This issue of the SHIN-NY Spotlight includes several exciting news items and features. We share updates on the Data Exchange Incentive Program (DEIP), which recently increased the potential incentive available for eligible organizations to connect to the SHIN-NY. You’ll learn more about the core services offered through the HIE such as real-time alerts, which are now available across most of New York State. Additionally, we’ve included recent examples showcasing the value of HIE and the SHIN-NY as well as a number of featured successes and provider spotlights, highlighting accomplishments of several of the State’s Qualified Entities.
Thank you for your ongoing collaboration!
